    Hello, can someone recommend me a moisturiser that I can just apply to the face (i.e. without having to wash/rinse) which doesn't make my face shiney or greasy (i.e. one that just absorbs in leaving little trace of something that's been applied). If something exists? Also one that I can easily buy at my local pharmacy or supermarker.

    I'm not very knowledgeable with cosmetics as you can see :p:

    Thanks

    Get something from Clinique. Little bit more pricey but definately worth it, make sure you get the right sort of thing for your skin type though - you can ask the people behind the counter for help ^_^

    Oops, missed the end bit. I'd still recommend it though...

    Er.... I've never heard of a wash-off moisturiser before.

    What you need is a mattifying moisturiser so it doesn't make you look shiny. Garnier have a range of products called Pure that you can get from the supermarket, Boots, Superdrug, etc, and the moisturiser in the range that has a pump bottle is mattifying.

    Just get 'Simple' light moisturiser from Boots/Superdrug. It's a lifesaver for me in this cold weather.

    Olay Beauty Fluid - I use it every day, so it's a bit expensive but totally worth it. I'm also fairly sure it's the reason I have clear skin, as the few times when I haven't used it for a while I get all spotty

    The Simple stuff is okay for the price. I'd really recommend any of the Body Shop's skin care range though.
